Completed the Seiko Diver Reissue trilogy

 By: reintitan : August 10th, 2019-11:18
With the SLA033J1 or simply SLA033 (SBEX031 is the JDM reference) the Seiko trilogy is complete.

It started in 2017 with the SLA017J1 (SBDX019 JDM) which was a reissue of Seiko's first dive watch from 1965, the 62MAS.  

Then last year came the SLA025J1 (SBEX007 JDM) reissue of Seiko's 1968 saturation diver with monocoque case.  This watch won the Best Sport Watch award at the Grand Prix d'Horologie de Genéve in 2018.

This year the SLA033 recreates Seiko's asymmetric dive watch from 1970 made famous by Martin Sheen's character Captain Benjamin Willard in the film Apocalypse Now.

My SBEX007 is at the bank so no completed trilogy pic yet.

It’s a great watch !

I have a soft spot for the 6105-8110 so this reissue really ticks a lot of boxes for me Cap'n

If you were to ask me I might even say I like it above my SBEX007...heresy I know!

In my opinion the build quality is the best that Seiko have ...

Very nice. You’ll need to also do a side by side with the original at some point. [nt]
